GeoJeopardy! Fridays

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because you're still working off the tryptophan today.

- Rocks and Minerals -

Originally these were quartz pebbles found in the Rhine River


There are deposits of this type of coal under half of West Virginia


Some of these fine-grained laminated sedimentary rocks are a source of oil


Connemara, Ireland is famous for the green-streaked variety of this stone

Now under the Coronation Chair, this stone came to England from Scotland



  1. Actually, the last one isn't now under the Coronation Chair but in Edinburgh Castle. It will be returned to England temporarily at the time of the next coronation.

  2. Thanks for the update. That is part of the problem with compiling these, that some are out of date. The question was actually dated 1990. It is also good to know that people actually read these :-).
